Tektronix Inc. presents an added capability for the AWG7000C series of arbitrary waveform generators (AWG) offering a commercial, off-the-shelf (COTS) solution for creating wide modulation bandwidth RF/microwave signals to 2.5GHz and rise/fall time of 35ps for high speed serial signals.

With a price point starting at Rs.2,29,330.85 ($5,000), the wide bandwidth Option 02 allows customers to purchase a dual channel 12GSps solution that will create fast rise/fall time, wide modulation bandwidth signals for less than Rs.45,86,617.00 ($100,000).

The AWG7000C series is designed to meet signal generation needs across a number of market segments including RF/Microwave design and characterization tasks in avionics, radar, and short range wireless communications, such as UWB, WirelessHD and WiGig. With the need to continually create wide-bandwidth signals, the AWG is a critical component in the modern test suite.

Through use of direct synthesis, the AWG7000C accurately creates wideband "bandwidth on demand" waveforms up to a 4.8GHz carrier frequency with the new Option 02. For greater frequency performance, the AWG7000C can be configured with the higher data rate option that doubles the data rate to 24GSps and produces 9.6GHz carrier signals.

To replicate real-world signal behavior, the AWG7122C can generate signals up to 1GHz of modulation bandwidth with 54dBc, 2.5GHz of modulation bandwidth with 46dBc spurious free dynamic range. Dynamic jump and sub-sequencing capabilities enable the creation of complex waveforms that respond to ever changing external environments.

The AWG7000C series are available for order. They are priced at $70,000 for the 8GSps AWG7082C and $90,000 for the 12GSps AWG7122C. Option 02 is priced at $5,000.
